A monthly series for 2013 looking at Town's meetings with the big names in English football
All three meetings between Northampton Town and Chelsea took place in 1965, beginning with a comfortable FA Cup win for the Londoners in Janury of that year.
The Cobblers then embarked on their sole season in the top-flight of English football and met the Pensioners twice in two days just after Christmas, losing by the odd goal on both occasions as they battled in vain to avoid the drop.
